Recently we came across a situation where because of the expiration of security certificates some of the business-critical integration processes started failing. This arose an idea to bring a false proof solution in place – “Let’s automate – Manage Security”.
Good thing, SAP does provide some life-saving APIs and we can consume those to build an automated integration alert process.
For more details on the available list of OData APIs visit API Business Hub https://api.sap.com/
Explore Security Content APIs – https://api.sap.com/api/SecurityContent/resource
In our case we will consume “KeystoreEntries” GET – Operation. As per our need we can explore other operations and APIs.
Time to make our hands dirty…simple and crisp 😊..
ODATA Channel Configuration:
- Address: https://<TenentURL>.hana.ondemand.com/api/v1
- Operation Details: GET
- Resource Path: KeystoreEntries
- Query Options: $select=Hexalias,Alias,KeyType,ValidNotBefore,ValidNotAfter,Validity,Type,Owner,LastModifiedBy,CreatedBy,Status,SubjectDN
Once we have the data, we can build our transformation logic (Step 5 above – Message mapping or Script) to filter the records which are getting due in next 30 Days.
Final action – Send an alert message to the concerned teams to take necessary action.
Now, it is your turn to automate the manage security content through a custom integration by consuming APIs from API Business Hub and add value to your monitoring capability!
Any question or feedback will be appreciated!
